Discover a fantastic day out at Blickling Estate

A short drive from the sandy beaches of Norfolk, the Blickling estate has long been one of the county’s top attractions. Once the home of the Boleyn family, the estate stretches across almost 5000 acres, its grand Jacobean house looming over sweeping parkland. Get hold of a map of the walks on the estate and set off to discover lost buildings or join up with the Weaver’s Way which runs across parts of the estate. The garden has interest year round plant-wise too. The sweet-smelling beds in the parterre and the double borders are a must-see, as are the hellebores, daffodils and bluebells, azaleas and rhododendron, wisteria and peonies that make this horticultural haven a delight to visit. We love the Victorian sunken garden with its four colourful herbaceous beds and yew topiary around a 17th century fountain. Go for a stroll through the formal wilderness garden with radial walks lined by avenues of turkey oak, lime and beech or hunt for the secret garden with summerhouse, sundial and scented plants in the northern wilderness area. In the orangery admire the citrus trees growing in abundance while beyond the garden lies the wooded 18th century landscape park planted with oak, beech and sweet chestnuts plus a long man-made lake.

Blickling Estate also has a Historic House:
